Dem babies are pool babies! Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon recently posted this photo of the Grammy-winning mama swimming with her 1-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan on dembabies.com, the site where the couple share family pics.
The trio is kind of a "vision of love" with Monroe in her black one-shoulder one-piece and Moroccan in his prepster whale-print trunks. We're not too surprised that the kids have crazy-cute swimsuits, judging from their first birthday haul. The only thing missing are some blinged out water toys.
Babies often love the pool (some experts say it's soothing because it reminds babies of the womb) and Carey, a fan of water aerobics, clearly does, too. She's holding the twins tight, which is a good thing -- a recent report says more American kids ages 1 to 4 die from drowning than any other cause, save birth defects, so paying attention to swim safety during water play is key for Carey and all parents.
Taking your kids to swimming lessons, blocking pool access and making sure a grown up is always within arm's reach in the water are just a few recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics. It's also important to empty and turn over plastic or blow-up pools after each use.
